How to Upgrade to the Latest Version of Wirecast

Upgrades Included

With each purchase of Wirecast 8 or later – whether it is an upgrade purchase or full license – customers receive an included Standard Support subscription for 1 year from the date of purchase. This subscription can be renewed annually for $99/year.

Optionally, customers can choose to upgrade this Standard Support subscription to a Premium Support subscription, at any time, for an additional fee. Premium Support subscriptions can be renewed annually for $299/year.

Your support subscription is tied to your Wirecast license. As long as your license is entered into the software and your Premium or Standard support subscription is active, you will be allowed to upgrade to the latest unlocked version of Wirecast for free. Just DownloadDownload and install Wirecast 11 and you will automatically have access to all the new features of Wirecast 11, depending on your license level.

If your support subscription is expired or you have not entered your license into the software, you will not be able to upgrade to an unlocked version and the software will revert to demo mode. However, you may continue to use the last valid version of the software released during your support subscription coverage.

If your support subscription is about to expire (12 months from the date of purchase), Wirecast will prompt you to renew it. If you do not renew it before it expires, you may re-subscribe at any time for an additional fee.
